Let's take photos together  Madeira, the island of eternal spring!


If you love to travel and take photos, you're in the right place! :) I'm Zsuzsa Léhner, a lawyer and photographer. Traveling and landscape photography is my passion, and creating these is a photo tour   I merged. I would also like to show you Madeira - the picture on the left was also taken there - surrounded by the masses of water in the Atlantic Ocean.  small jewelry box.  If you are looking for something really special and picturesque, but you are tired of the trite, common destinations, Madeira is your location!


Come with me and a dozen other like-minded travelers who all share with you their passion for breathtaking landscapes and photography. Linda and my local Hungarian tour guide partner will take you to the best places - in many cases hidden, not crowded with tourists - where you can even take a photo of your life.

The famous laurel forest, for example, is worth the trip on its own. This mystical, fairytale forest evolved 65 million years ago. Surviving the ice age alone, it is an invaluable natural asset as the last natural remnant of an extinct plant community, which is why it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999. By the way  we can feel in it as if we were walking in one of the locations of the Lord of the Rings.

But if you stick with us, you can’t just see beautiful landscapes! Zolixplorer, aka Zoltán Nagy, also accepted my invitation, so he helps me find the best settings at the photo venues and shares useful tips and tricks with us about the masterpieces of landscape photography. However, we know that it is  a really good landscape cannot be lived without a skillful post-production, so in a workshop he introduces us to the material of his course Camera with the World - Creative Post-Work.

By the way, Zoli claims to be a professional traveler, a digital nomad. According to him, like the philosopher St. Augustine, "the world is a book, and he who does not travel reads only one page." And because he is also passionate about traveling and photography, he has become a true expert in landscape photography and related post-production. You will pass on the best of your course in the workshop, which you can read a little further on below.


By the way, at the end of November, Madeira won the title of the Best Island Destination for the 5th time without interruption at the World Travel Awards! Do you need more reasons to see and capture? Don't hesitate for a long time because it's the best  participation fee is only valid until December 31, and the number of participants is limited, only 14 people!  

Surprise yourself or one of your loved ones for Christmas or the joy of the new year! Until 30 December, you will now be able to get to Cristiano Ronaldo's homeland, who was named  airport where we will land.  

Are you a beginner but an avid photographer? It's great, because you can learn the basic settings from Zoli in practice, and you can ask him anything about photography and landscape photography both in the field, where he will be with us for 2 days, and in the indoor workshop.  

Are you advanced, maybe a professional photographer? That's great too, because then for you  you don't have to mess with the basics anymore, you can pay full attention to the stunning scenery and perfect composition. However, in the advanced part of our Photoshop workshop  it can be new knowledge for you too, or just torturous  you can get answers to your questions about the most specific aspects of the post-production.

Would you bring your non-photographer couple, family member, friend with you? No worries! He will also be impressed by the sight.
